Why we chose them
The Riserva San Massimo was born in the heart of Ticino park: a natural environment (space) where the intensive farming hasn't change the environmental conformation. Natural spaces are divided by agricultural areas, fruit tree row, lawn and popular trees. This space is rich of water (spring, swamp) and biodiversity, where there are a lot of types of animals and plants: the Riserva of Guido Antonello was identified as a Community Interest Site. Only 100 hectares is used to the Carnaroli production (only the most fertile fields). The whole production process, from threshing to packing, takes place according to the traditional way. Low temperatures are used to the drying through a modern natural gas machinery that don't break grains and above all don't leave traces of combustible into the rice. The rice is stored into ventilated silos without any noxious preservative. The rice is piled in a little plot of land to promise more freshness and the conservation of all organoleptic quality. This operation is made with old machineries that are the "Amburgo" (Hamburg) type where the refining process is done at low intensity.
